We aimed to evaluate therapeutic results of radiotherapy for gastric mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) lymphomas. We reviewed retrospectively the records of 11 patients presenting with gastric MALT lymphoma treated between 1993 and 2014. Patients with low-grade lymphoma in failure after helicobacter eradication had exclusive gastric external radiotherapy. Chemotherapy followed by radiotherapy were indicated in case of high grade lymphoma. Radiotherapy doses range between 30 and 40Gy (2Gy per fraction, five fractions per week). All tumours were IE stage. Seven patients with low-grade lymphoma had radiotherapy. Four patients with high-grade lymphoma received chemotherapy then radiotherapy. Ten patients are in complete remission after treatment achievement. Five and 10 years disease-free survival are 100%. No severe toxicity was seen. Eradication of Helicobacter pylori is the mainstay of treatment of gastric MALT. External irradiation is an effective and well-tolerated treatment modality in case of resistance to helicobacter eradication. Copyright © 2018 Société française de radiothérapie oncologique (SFRO).
